In United Arab Emirates, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation introduced a new service on its website: “Tawajudi for residents”.
The new service is intended for residents with valid residencies and who are outside the country. This service aims to facilitate their safe return to the UAE in emergency situations.
Residents who are currently abroad can register for this service through the website, thus facilitating communication with them in case of emergency.
In a statement, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation said that UAE is keen to ensure the health and safety of residents on its land and facilitate their return to the country in emergency cases.
UAE had earlier announced that it had suspended the entry of all its valid residence visa holders, who are currently out of the country, for a renewable period of two weeks effective from 19th March, due to the spread of COVID-19. Expatriates of 180 nationalities including Indians are staying in the UAE.
